Subject: Nice fun
Kind of a "watch it while you're doing something" movie. Mildly entertaining.
Subject: typical fart western
lots of gas... slight smears
This film was directed by Hal Roach, Jr. Not the Hal Roach (Sr.)that produced Laurel and Hardy and Our Gang. Hal Roach , Jr was more active in television. I believe he had a hand in "Public Defender''., "Racket Squad'', My Little Margie", the William Bendix "Life Of Riley" and Amos N Andy had the credit ''produced through the facilities of Hal Roach Studios"
Subject: Sitcom Without A Laugh Track
I looked forward to watching this as I always like Virginia Grey -- and the old geezer in his Western sidekick roles . Plus all the rave reviews.
But anyway , it's just a horrible sitcom . All that was missing was a laugh track . If you liked that thing with Shelly Winters and the little dog this might be about your speed . Skip this and go for Swamp Fire if you want to see mature Virginia in a fun movie.
Subject: Clem Bevans is hilarious
Who says you have to spend a lot of money to make a good movie. Clem Bevans and Cecil Kellaway shine in this little gem from Hal Roach.
This is where the Internet Archive is so important as it allows movie buffs and fans to see some of the early programmer titles. Fun from start to finish, "Hurrican at Pilgrim Hill" is definitely a keeper...thanks for uploading it.
Subject: .....Don't Forget...Starting January 4th..
....To get those vhs & dvd recorders ready.....Every tuesday night for several hours Turner Classic Movies will show Hal Roach material....all month long..A GOLD MINE of freebies from the vault.
Subject: I liked it.
Observations about stereotypes aside, the banter between "Bigmouth" and the Indians is quite funny.
It was interesting to see Billy Gray ("Bud" from the TV show Father Knows Best), playing Bigmouth's grandson Johnny, early in the play.
Bigmouth spends most of his time urging his son in law to grow a pair. The son in law musters up the testicular fortitude to stand upon personal principle, and all ends well.
A fun movie which moves me to wax generous. 5 stars.

Subject: Lot of stereotypes
But funny none-the-less. Wise cracking old coot sets the blue bloods straight.
That's just what we need in today’s world to set the rich blood suckers straight that they don't really own the planet.
Subject: Got a kick out of this one
Lots of funny bits. Obnoxious old guy quite appealing. Thoroughly enjoyable.
Subject: definintely an A plus
Hal Roach's comedy is timeless, actually had me laughing out loud! I loved it and glad I took the time to watch it.
Subject: unknown gem
This is a funny tongue-in-cheek film. Good cast of busy supporting actors of the day...and before.

Subject: wild and funny
this one is worth watching and not at all "Little Rascals" but more of an adult comedy, even though elements of that comedy series are present. I like the Indians in the beginning, "made $90k last year on the oil and what did I get, taxes" while Indian no 2 answers "gotta support your gov't"
Lots of comments about gov't and the wealthy, seems like nothing really changes.
Subject: Delightful, does not disappoint.
This is a WINNER! I highly recommend it. Well worth watching.
An old coot of a cowboy from Prairie Falls out west goes to visit his "yankee" granddaughter in Pilgrim Hill in the North.
The two styles of living don't get on together well and he irritates everyone with his big mouth and his meddling ways. He meddles just one step too far and it's actually pretty twisted what he tries to do Mr. Smith.
Quick moving, well acted and very entertaining.
It's a Hal Roach film, so you know it's going to be fun!
